that is not as exposed to the consumer problems that microsoft is. >> josh brown, are you buying any technology on a day when it's underperformed the broader market, when it's underperformed for the past five weeks? >> no. the problem with tech is the larger the names, the less attractive they are. and so when you think about what moves the index, it's the companies that are in the most trouble. intel, hewlett-packard, microsoft, dell, apple is not acting well. go down the list. so we like qualcomm. we're long the name. we've been long for years. we think it's probably the highest quality name out there of -- actually, it's a bigger market cap than intel. but other than that, there's no really big theme. there's no sector that you can point to and say there's huge earrings growth for a large swath of stocks. there are some here and there stories, like rack space, that we're interested in. but other than that, this is not a great sector, not a great time to be in these names. >> joe, give me a quick line as to why you pulled the trigger today on apple? yesterday doug kass, who was bearish, went bullish a

the reason we're dropping? let's bring in joe terranova, josh brown to find out. gentlemen, at least that's what i presume you are, is this really an obama selloff or is this the market rally and what is the reason now? >> what the reason is, what the outcome is going to be, really? it doesn't matter. what should matter is what should have happened today. this company is deficient in commonsense at some point this morning the speaker of the house, the president should have walked into a room and said the fiscal cliff that everyone is worried about, we're going to get it done, walk out of the room if they did that, the s&p is unchanged on the day. >> you have so much hope and cynicism. >> after august 2001, we should have learned the lesson and had commonsense. obviously we don't. >> mr. najarian, what is driving the selloff today? >> well, i think what we're seeing is a combination of everything above. it's a combination of germany, obviously that hangover that you're seeing from europe and from the election itself. because of the fact that so many are banking on, what are the i am areas

. >> everything has to be on the table, josh brown. we're trying to figure out what the heck to do in the market, how do you make your decisions whether to buy stock here? >> the way we respond is to take a look at the markets here. what are trends telling us? what they're telling us is the bears are in control at the moment. there will be a bounce at some point. a lot of those bounces have faded. for us, we'd rather be liquid. we've been mentioning that on the show. it's not perma bearishness. when things change, we can move. that's been the posture. i will say the only overweight we still maintain is health care. we think that acts the best on the way out of this thing even though over the last month the sector has been down 6%. >> you have a more defensive bent. stephanie link, has this debate and the rancor around it and the inability of our leaders to rise above, has it killed any hopes for a year-end rally? >> well, yeah, certainly if we don't get a fiscal cliff resoluti resolution, certainly. >> is it off the table? >> it depends if we can get something. if we get a can kick i do think we

governor brown has said that if his tax hike didn't pass it would mean $6 billion in cuts to education that will happen almost immediately. we will have to see if he makes good on the threats. he says he has nowhere else to cut. if it does pass, it will make california's highest tax rate the highest in the land. millionaires will have to pay 13.3% state income taxes. it would raise the sales tax and raise anywhere from $35 billion to $50 billion over $100 million in lobbying on both sides went into this proposition. at the moment the state says with 17% of the precincts reporting it is trailing. we still have a long night ahead. >> basically part of the security detail just came along and held up a big five minutes. and then moved on. so that, obviously, roused all of us to get up and get ready. we are hopeful that we will hear from mitt romney or whoever will be the table setters to get him on stage. you now know what we know. >> any more talk there as far as the romney camp not wanting to con seed the loss in ohio because the votes were not counted fully? >> no, not really. >> we kno

. in an election year and a nonelection year. that's all squarely in front of us. >> josh brown, do you have a question? >> hi, craig. three out of four companies that reported in the s&p 500 and have given guidance for the quarter have something negative to say. in addition to which there is really only one period of time in modern history where we have had an earnings recession that didn't coincide with a broader recession to the actual economy. why do you think this might be different? what are you seeing that maybe the market isn't because we have been trapped in this range for a while. >> terrific. we have been stuck in the secular bear market for 12 years now. >> correct. >> what i find interesting is when you look at 1982, 1982 is when we saw a relative strength roll over in our work in the energy sector and in the basic materials sector. that's exactly what we are seeing again. energy and basic materials have rolled over several months ago. that's what we saw in '82. >> craig, we have 30 years forward in terms of a global economy. you just can't look at what the market did in 1982. c
out there. dillard's and lvs are two big names. >> how about j.j. brown forman is doing it as well. the list gets bigger by the day. >> yeah. it wouldn't surprise me to see this continue as john and steve talked about, cash-rich companies. many think it's because they make jack daniels, and they think we may need some as we head towards the fiscal cliff. >> doc, if you want a best guess on who is next, what kind of names? >> i'd like at microsoft and apple, quite frankly. the reason is big insiders, steven jobs widow is a huge shareholder over at apple. the board members and insiders are huge there, and then microsoft, bomber and gates huge insiders. they can take this money after the table at 15%. why wouldn't you, judge? >> weiss. >> i agree with apple. i hadn't been in that camp before, but with all the cash they have it's impossible to buy anybody else, although i'm sorry to hear r.i.m. may be in consideration. they have to give a dividend out there. the cash isn't earning anything on the balance sheet. give it to shareholders and make people happy and draw others into the stoc
